No, why? The price changes were announced months ahead.
- $599 campaign fall 2017
- price increase announced fall 2018
- $699 spring 2019 (I think)
- $749 & $799 announced end of 2019
Summary: Librem 5 will increase to $749 on January 1, 2020 and once Evergreen ships, will arrive at its final $799 price to reflect the actual final costs of the hardware, instead of being based off estimates.
In my opinion, that final increase has three motivations
- “preorder now” incentive
- generate revenue
- make wiggle room for black Friday sales at $749
